Hello, everyone! I assume you've seen the January MFT release set Let's Stick Together? It's so cute! I especially love the cacti that have their "hair" done. Tee hee!
I made this into a combined birthday/Valentine card for a friend who has a February birthday. How timely! Thanks for being born, Johnny! LOL.
My first step was to stamp out a bunch of the cute cacti and color them up with Copics. I hadn't chosen the base paper at that time so the matching was kismet.
I really wanted to use the MFT Fun & Frolic 6x6 paper but the cacti stack could hardly be seen because of those sassy stripes so I add a piece of thick vellum. I was able to tack the vellum down in hidden places except for the top right corner where I applied a small dot of glue after I spilled water on it and it warped. Remind me to be more careful when drinking water while crafting.
I did still want to feature that fun paper tho so used the LF Candy Hearts to cut out a couple to stick on top.
I embossed the sentiment on black and used Scor-Tape to adhere it. I love all of the layers and texture of this card yet still easily mailed. Woo hoo!
That's it for me today. Have a great rest of your week! In the meantime, be sure to check out the shop as there are lots of new products being released--yay!
